Someone has written these beautiful words.

One must read and try to understand

the deep meanings in them.

They are like the Ten Commandments

to follow in life all the time.

1] Prayer is not a "spare wheel"

that you pull out when in trouble;

it is a "steering wheel"

that directs us in the right path

throughout life.

2] Do you know why a

car's WINDSHIELD is so large

& the rear view mirror is so small?

Because our PAST

is not as important

as our FUTURE.

So, look ahead and move on.

3] Friendship is like a BOOK.

It takes few seconds to burn,

but it takes years to write.

4] All things in life are temporary.

If going well enjoy it,

they will not last forever.

If going wrong don’t worry,

they can't last long either.                                     

5] Old friends are like Gold!

New friends are Diamonds!

If you get a Diamond,

don't forget the Gold!

Because to hold a Diamond,

you always need a base of Gold!

6] Often when we lose hope

and think this is the end,

GOD smiles from above and says,

"Relax, sweetheart,

it's just a bend, not the end!"

7] When GOD solves your problems,

you have faith in HIS abilities;

when GOD doesn't solve your problems

HE has faith in your abilities.

8] A blind person

asked St. Anthony:

"Can there be anything worse

than losing eye sight?"

He replied:

"Yes, losing your vision."

9] When you pray for others,

God listens to you

and blesses them;

and sometimes,

when you are safe and happy,

remember that someone

has prayed for you.


does not take away

tomorrow's TROUBLES;

it takes away today’s PEACE.
